DMagazine – Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe and Cafe Momentum Form a Youth-Centered Partnership

Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe food trucks have changed their name to reflect a partnership with Cafe Momentum, the non-profit that works with at-risk youth. The food trucks, now emblazoned with the new moniker, Ruthie’s Fueled by Cafe Momentum, will function as a landing place for youth who have completed the downtown program and want to pursue a paid fellowship.

“We’re thrilled, we’re just so excited,” says Ruthie’s founder Ashlee Kleinert.

The genesis of the partnership comes from another program, Ruthie’s Snacks of Kindness, in which Ruthie’s team delivers to a different non-profit organization every month—part of Kleinert’s big-heartedness. One of those organizations last year was Cafe Momentum. The seed was planted.”
